re: New England Patriots' Winning Technology Plan
While I don't necessarily want to personally use iPads, tablets, and other mobile devices while I am enjoying a live sporting event, I would see a huge value in having an app that would allow me to order and pay for food and find out how long I would have to wait in line to use the restroom. I think these apps would add real value for fans who might otherwise be deterred from attending a live game. The ability to listen to coach-to-QB communications would also really entice me to spend money to get to more live games.
